Now that President Buhari's main focus is on the North...according to world bank, IF he decides to contest in 2019, he'd better focus on the North to give him all the votes he'll need

“You know, in my very first meeting with President Buhari he said specifically that he would like us to shift our focus to the northern region of Nigeria and we’ve done that. Now, it has been very difficult. The work there has been very difficult...

“Despite that, there is so much turbulence in the northern part of the country, and there is the hit that was taken from the drop in the oil prices. Nigeria has to think ahead and invest in its people. Investing in the things that will allow Nigeria to be a thriving, rapidly growing economy in the future is what the country has to focus on right now.” - Jim Yong Kim, President of World Bank Group

Our take on the matter
  • What happened to the environmental degradation issues in the Niger Delta, the ogoni cleanup, second Niger bridge, intervention in Agriculture to help diversify the economy? 
  • Once upon a time, Buhari said "I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody", from the foregoing, is he standing by his words?
